"No One Can Make You Feel Inferior Without Your Consent"

Eleanor Roosevelt 


These words have been words I have lived by for over 60 years!


You see, what you say about yourself does have an effect on how you see yourself.  It defines you in language and then you will live consistent with what you have said not who you really are. 


Even after you receive data, evidence, that says you are not what you said you were you dismiss it, especially if it is positive, and continue to be your own

worst enemy!


Since I am turning 70 next month and I have asked that you do not give me a gift, I do have one request for my Birthday -


Stop giving your consent to people who make you feel inferior!


That is the best Birthday Present I could have from you.  If you are willing to do that let me know and we'll start a list!  A list of all the women who refuse to give consent to those who would make them feel inferior!!


Now that's a Birthday Present!!




Notice to Graduates


Susan's 70th Birthday is December 10, and we will be celebrating here in Westlake Village, CA.  If you would like to attend, please let me know ASAP.


Given most of you will not be able to be here with us we are asking that you send well wishes to me by E-mail or mail so we can display them at the party.


Thanks and watch for December newsletters for pictures of the party!

Continuing Your

Women Moving Forward® Experience 


The April Advanced Women Moving Forward® Group from Cincinnati!   Nichole, Anne, Joyce, Susan, Kaoru, Jill, and Anna


If you have ever thought, "I wish I could hear Susan's voice again" or "I want to re-visit what I learned in WMF® now that my life has changed" then


Advanced Women Moving Forward®

REVIEWING or OBSERVING could be an option for you!


Because women's lives occur in stages: singledom, marriage, kids, etc. we always had the option for women to return to the workshop when they entered a new stage.

Here are the 3 options graduates can use to attend WMF® again:


Attending Advanced Women Moving Forward®

The 2 day workshop will have you focus on:

  • Your purpose in life and how to live a more purposeful life.

  • Completing your old Declarations of Self

  • Creating new Declarations of Self


In this option you are actually a full participant.  You do a pre-call and pre-work and participate as a full participant!

You will need to be present for all 3 days and do all the workshop exercises.  The cost is 50% of the total cost of the workshop.  In the US reviewing currently costs $1875.



In this option you sit at the Observer Table and do the exercises from that vantage point. You can "observe" where you are now and where you need to be next.  You participate only silently from the back of the room.


Observing affords you the flexibility to come and go as you please (except during the completion exercise).  You do not participate fully and only speak to the room if asked to by Susan.  The cost to Observe is $250 in the US and $450 in other countries.


In every workshop we do we have limited spaces for Reviewers and for Observers.  If you think you will want to Observe or Review please let us know so we can reserve your space.


Next Opportunities to Observe or Review are next week in Cincinnati and in October in Geneva. I look forward to the possibility of seeing some of you soon!


Watch for new schedule of Advanced WMF® in 2016!




2015 WMF® WORKSHOPS !!!!

Get registered quickly!!! 


 2016 Women's Leadership Retreat  FULL



2015 was an incredible year for the  Women's Leadership Retreat®!  The issues we discussed this year were:

 -  Completion of Death

 -  Kubler-Ross Death and Dying Stages

 -  Completing By Telling the Truth


One of our participants said:

"Feeling so privileged and grateful for an amazing gift and life changing experience. Thank you Susan!!"



The women attending came away feeling more empowered then ever before. The completion of some very difficult experiences coupled with telling the truth set them on a more purposeful course. 


It was a magnificent group of women! 






The 2015 Retreat© last group Dinner on Thursday PM


We used this year's Retreat to discuss what completion regarding death really is. It was a safe place for the women who attended to completesome difficult life experiences for themselves.  That is what The Retreat© is; a place for women, at director level and above, to be so they can

feel the support of other women and personally and professionally grow from that experience.  No matter how successful you are there is always more to develop and grow.



A Light moment in the 2015 WLR® 


To attend in 2016, May 3-5 (make up day May 2),  you must be a graduate of Women Moving Forward®  for at least a year and you must also attend Advanced Women Moving Forward® (unless you have attended The Women's Leadership Retreat before).


Advanced Women Moving Forward® is scheduled for:

August 19-20   Thousand Oaks, CA

September 8-9  Geneva, Switzerland


You will also need to attend the make-up day May 2 . You will have 26+ concepts to master and 60+ pages of pre-work.  We will bundle the price of the workshops together so you can meet the prerequisites with a discount.


For new participants or participants who missed a year, the fee is $4950 USD.  For returning participants the fee is $4150 USD.  I look forward to speaking with you about this incredible program!

Meltem and Janice discussing purpose at the Geneva Advanced Women Moving Forward® Workshop


Here are some quotes from the evaluations of the last Advanced Women Moving Forward® Workshop:


"I understand the boundaries that go along with my role, I will be able to make more efficient decisions"


"I have a greater sense of clarity over my life....this has given me the opportunity to start with a clean slate. I am more in touch with myself..."


"I am more purposeful and can lead from a higher level....  I am more 'in the moment' because the distractions are being removed"


"...(I'm) not alone in my experience, support is so helpful...  like a renewal of WMF® to a further degree"


"I will live more on purpose at work which will make me more effective in my role...as a leader. This will benefit my company..."


"I plan to move through breakdown as quickly as possible"


"I am more centered and more on purpose which will help me make clearer decisions and improve productivity"


"Knowing that breakdowns are opportunities to learn information to move back into creation vs viewing them as a dead end"


"I will focus on 'who owns the problem' and delegate the solution to them"


"I have let go of old declarations and am refocused on the path forward"






For those of you who want to attend The Women's
Leadership Retreat© for the first time in 2013 there is now a pre-requisite; Advanced Women Moving Forward®.


In the past, we were able to do a make-up day for The Retreat© covering all of the previous year's concepts.  This is not possible any longer.  With 60+ pages of concepts to learn before the first day of The Retreat©, we must have another way to get potential attendees up to the current year's concepts.

The 2 day format will cover:

  1. The participant will start to identify or identify
    their purpose in life.

  2. The participant will know the properties of purpose.

  3. The participant will know how this supports their work and how to maximize their work contribution using their purpose.

  4. The participant will know and know how to use
    intention to attain higher levels of productivity.

  5. The participant will be able to bring in to being
    bigger results using their knowledge of Creation, Intention and Purpose.

Who Should Attend This Workshop?

  • Any woman who is a graduate of Women Moving Forward® and who wants to improve her productivity and lead a more purposeful life.

  • Any woman who plans to attend the Women's
    Leadership Retreat© and has not attended before.

  • Any graduate of Women Moving Forward® who wants to continue the process they started.

Cost: $2750 in the United States; $4750 in Geneva
